Joe Rogan Experience. I'd put it in the "occasionally worth watching".
https://www.youtube.com/user/PowerfulJRE

He sometimes gets some interesting interviews with people (ex: Jon Ronson) and he sits down with people on the left, right, center political spectrum and tries to get to know them well.

But most of the time he's got this weird dumb kind of really superficial "fake deep stoned" philosophy... .combined with some very oddball detours into other topics.. which make for unintentional hillarity:

hahahahahaha

Oh yeah, Rogan for sure. But he makes SO much stuff and its always SO long!.... Gotta pick and choose which to sit through.

My favourite thing he's said that sums up his personality was a few weeks ago:

"Eat meat with dirty hands"

ah!

Red Letter Media for snarky, fun commentary on old bad movies + dumb modern big budget films

and the occasional really good old film..
Example:

I just ran into one but I'm super excited about exploring it.

Based on a mere 3 videos (everything else I've recommended so far has been something I've been watching for years... and years... and years.)

Two minute papers
.... cutting edge science shit, boiled right down!
